I Was Bad

First of all, I want to say, it wasn't my fault. Honest. The bowl was sitting in the middle of the kitchen table. Right in front of my nose.

Okay, so I had to stand up on my hind legs and stretch a little.

Jan was sitting in here typing at the computer and the bowl was in the kitchen, just sitting - right in front of my nose, like I already said. What was I to do? I just knew Jan left it there for me and I better eat it before Samaritan found it. And he wouldn't have to stretch to reach it. So I helped myself.

And then I heard Jan call me. I rushed into the living room to put on my leash so we dogs could walk Jan, but she was suspicious and checked the kitchen first. Uh-oh, when she called me, I left in a hurry and splattered some of Jan's double batch of cornbread batter all over the table and everything on it. I looked around but there were no other residents in the kitchen to blame.

Guilt was written all over my face. The speckles of batter on my nose gave me away. I couldn't deny I did it. But I really thought she left it there for me.

I want Jan to know I'm turning over a new leaf. So I had Percy take this photo.

See, Jan, this is my sorry face. I'm really sad and I promise not to do it again. Ever. Am I forgiven?







Percy, I can't see for the flash. Is Jan buying any of this?

  10. I think if the bowl was there, someone was required to eat it. I don't know why it shouldn't have been you?

  14. Oh dear!!

    When gran comes to stay she gets worried about any uncovered food on the kitchen counter and always puts a big dish over it - because she has a labrador that does that.

    Mom tells her that the cats don't want any of it... but she doesn't believe her!

  16. I want to thank all of you who stopped by and left nice comments for me today. I feel so much better, especially since Jan did forgive me. But it's nice to know so many of you are behind me on this food under the nose deal. Having to stand and s-t-r-e-t-c-h didn't mean it wasn't mine. I don't know why Jan complained. I left her some.

    Buddy,

  21. Hey there Buddy!
    You're welcome! And it's okay if you're still feeling kind of sad about it... but like we said, we all make mistakes sometimes and we learn from them. So be glad you learned something and put a smile on your face!! :D The more you smile, the longer you'll live!

  25. I think that's a very sincere apology. Sincerity is a challenge for me. Mom never believes it.

  26. JFF, I used EVERYTHING and made a din of a noise but to no avail! Just ask Derby, I was even noisier than his mom!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maybe the cold numbed their hearing! Derby's neighbour certainly noticed the noise. Especially after the commiseration niptinis that we had after the defeat. Hehehe!

  34. Who could hold a grudge against such a gorgeous face - nice job looking repentent. It will go a long way toward getting forgiveness.

  37. Hi guys, I'm at the academy with Sassy and Percy. You must all come and visit! You can give me your opinions on my routines. I still have to get that big furry butt to shake properly. So difficult!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I don't believe you! Hahahaha, tell me how you doggies do that, I see that same thing almost everyday -- hahha.

    But... the truth must be said. Jan left the bowl right before your nose, that's asking for trouble. I think Jan has to say sorry to you!! :-)

  40. Awww. What a great suck-up job you did!!!

    RE: your comment about someone saying Texas laws are already tough on cruelty. The laws are increasingly getting better each legislative session, but this is still a good ol' boy state with lots of special interest money. And, one of the biggest problems is that in a state this size, there are MANY counties with absolutely no animal control officer and no one to investigate abuse or puppy mills, etc. So it takes a task force of several different out-of-county agencies working together to conduct a raid, and then prosecution has been so difficult. Although with the 2007 session, some loopholes have been filled.

    Just go to www.thln.org and read Cile Holloway's "Light a Candle of Hope for the Animals" on the home page and you'll see what they will be working on for the 2009 session.
